Yep, that's why I filled mine too.

just wanted to give an update and let you and all the others know that its been exactly a year since Jaypod and myself have had our bumpers done and there is absolutley no lines or any proof of a reflector ever being present on the bumper. So save your $$$, dont buy a euro bumper for 2K

Slammed, by chance do you (or anyone else who has done this) have a clear bra? Wondering if that might help keep the filler from receding.
